It is hard, like all boot camps. It is different from the other services though because you are supposed to be trained with the goal of serving on a ship, so you won't have all the field training you see in the army or marines. When you first get their you will get processed in. They will search you for contraband and... More

I dunno about the "different for a woman" part obviously, but mostly it's boring. No kidding. In general, the worst part about it was kinda split 50/50% between lack of sleep, and not being able to call me wife for x number of weeks in a row. Not really hard, just long days, and weird. When are you shipping? '... More

It will not be that much more different... More

My suggestion, get used to marching and ironing clothes. It's not as bad as alot of people say though. yes, they do yell, but only if you mess up. And get used to running too. The navy is all about running. You'll spend alot of time marching and alot of time in classrooms as well. i'll give you the same advice i was... More

Currently in Navy and out of boot camp a year. It was easy! There are mind games and just keep remembering that. They will say things to you that really make you want to go off on them or even leave, but that is their way to get to you. Yelling, yeah, just a bit. You get used to it. My dad is ex Army so the yelling I... More
